Woe to New York City! – Brian Lake

Over the past four years, the Lord Jesus Christ has given me three dreams about New York City. In the first dream (April 14, 2015), I saw an angel walking up and down the sidewalks of the city. He was singing a sad song and imploring the people to “Escape from New York City!” He had a symbol on his chest that resembled a nuclear fallout shelter sign.

In the second dream (May 24, 2015), I was walking toward Brooklyn on the Brooklyn Bridge. I was warning the people to “Escape from New York City!” as hundreds of vehicles were streaming onto Manhattan Island. The drivers either ignored me or reveled in mocking and scoffing.

In the third dream (June 23, 2018), I was above Manhattan Island looking down on the city. I saw a huge rectangular section covered in yellow light. The light then moved to the next block of buildings. All that was left in the area that was judged, was the blackened and burned out remains of the former buildings. As the people in the remaining sections saw what was happening, they panicked and tried to escape the city. However, it was too late and they did not survive.

In May of 2018, I traveled over 3,000 miles to visit New York City for the first time. The Holy Spirit led me to intercede for all of the people living there. I found the bridge that was in my dream, and walked out to the middle of the Brooklyn Bridge.

The replica Arch of Baal in City Hall Park is, I believe, a sign of the Lord’s impending judgment on Manhattan Island. I continue to mourn for all of the people who will be lost in America’s largest city.

“For when they say, “Peace and Safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.” I Thessalonians 5: 3

In Christ,

Brian Lake

    Hi Brian, I am greatly reassured that the Holy Spirit led you to intercede for New York City. Having done so, you have committed New Yorkers into the hands of a loving, gracious and merciful God. We should all do the same for every person on the planet who had not blasphemed the Holy Spirit and can be redeemed. Other people should be our greatest concern – the best thing we can do for them is to pray to the Lord for them and then do what we are called to do – “Cast all your anxieties upon him, because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7) – and then trust in the Lord with all our hearts.

    I too had a dream, but mine was similar as Brian’s, but it was Seattle instead. I walked down the street by Pioneer Square and all I saw were homeless behind empty fruit stands but they were rotten apples to people passing by. It was weird. I had that dream last year but never thought of anything until now.
